Sunday Music: Ben Gibbard/Jay Farrar - "These Roads Don't Move"
From the One Fast Move Or I'm Gone soundtrack CD; the film is a documentary about Jack Kerouac's Big Sur and the lyrics on the CD are taken from the book itself. My avoidance of all things Death Cab For Cutie related is temporarily suspended since it turns out hearing Gibbard sing about something other than himself is actually not so bad while Farrar does a less intense version of his Son Volt thing. Farrar has grown on me, but it's hard to imagine there was ever a time when Jeff Tweedy was perceived as the member of Uncle Tupelo less likely to have success outside that band. More on this song here. (Song In My Head Today)
